Super Bowl: The Big Reveal on Wednesday

Posted by: Rochelle Olson Updated: May 6, 2014 - 4:57 PM

The Twin Cities' Super Bowl bid goes to all 32 NFL owners on iPads by Wednesday.

Now the co-chairs of the panel making the pitch (pass?) will meet with reporters to talk about what they've turned in. The Twin Cities (plus Bloomington)  are one of three finalists for the 2018 Super Bowl game. New Orleans and Indianapolis also are in the hunt.

A "media availability" is happening at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Minnesota Vikings Board Room in their Preview Center and Sales office. That's the place where the Purple pitches (passes?) season tickets and stadium-builder licenses to fans.

Gov. Mark Dayton appointed the bid committee earlier this year. The chairmen and woman will be available for questioning Wednesday. They are: Marilyn Carlson Nelson of Carlson Companies, Richard Davis of U.S. Bancorp and Doug Baker of Ecolab.

The three have thus far not discussed details of the bid and it's unclear what they might have to say Wednesday.

The NFL owners will hear a formal pitch and vote on May 20 in Atlanta on where to play the game.

The new Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium will be almost two years old in time for the 2018 game. The Vikings play their first season at the new place in 2016.
